Drew McIntyre is still one of WWE’s top Superstars, even though he hasn’t been around for months. Now, we are getting a bit closer to that return, but his contract is still a big question.
PW Insider noted behind their paywall that there is currently no update on Drew McIntyre’s current contract situation. Now, it just seems that we are waiting for the two sides to come to an agreement.
There has been no update on McIntyre signing a new deal with the company as his current deal is slated to expire in early 2024. We are told that a big crux of the current conversations between the two sides are how McIntyre will be used from a storyline perspective, particularly how meaningful the storyline will be. The belief is that with less than a year left on his deal, McIntyre doesn’t want to be aimlessly floating when he has already proven during the pandemic how important he can be to the overall company, not just as an in-ring competitor but as an overall ambassador to the brand.
It was also noted that “the belief is that until McIntyre and WWE come to an agreement on how he will be used going forward, he won’t be back. We can confirm WWE wants him back by Money in the Bank. Whether that happens, we will see.”
Only time will tell what is next for Drew McIntyre. He has a ton of fans, and they might just follow him to another company. That is, of course, if WWE can’t stop him from venturing out once again, as he has done in the past.
